Researchers found a breakthrough clue in reversing aging by restoring lost sight in mice. Researchers inserted genes into mouse eye cells and reprogrammed neurons to make them more resistant to damage. It helped to regrow after injury and to protect and restore the optic nerve like a young mice.
By turning on or off genes, the age reversing can be possible. If researchers can replicate these results in other animals, it can lead to treatments in humans for age-related disease in the eye and beyond.
